Tracy Proffitt

Catch up on all of yesterday’s minor league action from around the Mets farm system!

*All results from games played on Saturday, July 27th 2013

AAA - Las Vegas 51's (57-48)______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 9, SACRAMENTO 4 (Box)

Vegas is hotter than the game time temperatures at Cashman Field lately. Saturday night's win made it nine out of the last eleven for the 51s and put them back ahead of the River Cats for the division lead. The offense, led by JV1, got to Sacramento starter Arnold Leon early, and the pen made it hold up. Fun game, guess how many games Valdespin will have to keep hitting .500 to get called back up to the majors.

AA - Binghamton Mets (65-40)_____________________________________

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (19-13 // 56-43)________________________________________

LAKELAND 13, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

Well, that escalated quickly.

REHAB ALERT: Cory Vaughn went 1 for 3 with an RBI on his endless rehab assignment.


Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (16-15 // 59-41)__________________________________

GAME ONE: SAVANNAH 3, AUGUSTA 2 (Box)

GAME TWO: SAVANNAH 3, AUGUSTA 1

A pair of excellent pitching performances put the Gnats back over .500. In Game One, Marcos Camarena went the distance and Savannah scored two in the bottom of the seventh for the walk-off win. In Game Two, Matt Koch retired 18 straight before a leadoff triple in the seventh ended his bid for a perfecto.

  • SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (18-20)__________________________________

    BROOKLYN 3, STATEN ISLAND 2 (Box)

    The Cyclones took another one from their cross-borough rivals Saturday night. Trailing 2-1 in the seventh, a two-out rally capped by a two-run single from Patrick Biondi put the Cyclones ahead for good. The Brooklyn bats were supported by strong outings from hard-throwing Miller Diaz and 2013 draftee Kevin McGowan.

  • CF Patrick Biondi: 3-5, R, RBI
  • RHP Miller Diaz: W, 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 4 BB, 8 K, 2 WP, HBP
  • RHP Kevin McGowan: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K; Check out Alex's post-draft report on McGowan, he's intriguing.

    After starting 3-9, Kingsport has won 18 of 23 and is just two games behind the Astros for the division lead.

  • LF Joe Tuschak: 0-5, K
  • SS Amed Rosario: 2-5, 2B, 3B, R, RBI, 2 K; Slugging .472 in his last 10. Also, is still 17.

    Star of the Night

    Lets give a hat tip to the pair of Brooklyn pitches for their fine performances

    Goat of the Night

    Alex Pantelidois gave up seven runs in two innings of work...that is suboptimal.
